For years, scientists have been able to graft skin tissue to cover up burns, lesions, etc. What they haven’t been able to do, however, is properly grow new skin cells over burnt ones.
Behold, the Star Trek-esque future we’re about to enter. A researcher has successfully created a “skin gun” that takes healthy skin cells and grows new skin over dead/burnt tissue. Over a dozen patients so far have successfully been treated by the “gun”, and clinical tests are underway to make this treatment available worldwide.
Check out the awesome video below to see the gun in practice.
